Over the last decades of last century and this years the interest in using nonexplosive demolition has increased again. Several companies started producing various agents with various names and similar characteristics, but with the same conditions of use. Unlike demolition by blasting, this method is environmentally friendly. The operation takes place quietly, with no seismic affects, dust, gases and no flying rocks. Rock cutting is done as needed and in the desired scale, with-out affecting the other rock mass or surrounding structures. In non-explosive blasting there are no work breaks, no evacuation of workers and machinery, and special safety at work, special requirements in traffic or other safety measures. These advantages have raised the issue with experts in the field of use and improvement of various agents or slurries for controlled cutting and demolishing of rock masses and structures. The first part of this paper points out the principles in the use of such agents, some properties and several examples for practical use (photos) in open pits for breaking of hard rock masses and demolishing concrete elements and construction facilities.
